Dakuku Peterside was able to escape with other members of the party but the number of deaths and casualties have not been determined.



All fingers are presently pointing at PDP for the mishaps. 

"This is not the first time APC rallies have been disrupted with violence, this not the first time APC members have been harmed by PDP thugs, this is not the firs time APC campaign materials have been destroyed by PDP thugs" an eyewitness told Elcutieesblog.


Meanwhile a Channels TV reporter, Mr. Charles Eruka, who was doing a stand-upper on the state of affairs even while lying on the ground, was hit by a stray bullet and is believed to be seriously injured.


His camera man, identified simply as Ekikere, told our correspondent that the victim was critically injured by the stray bullet adding that they are currently taking refuge at a church close to the National Secondary School, venue of the rally.
Also the  corpse of a policeman believed to have been caught up in the gun fire of the invading attackers has just been recovered from the venue amid fears that there would be more of such casualties.
